But here's the thing. The eroding middle class and utter lack of rights and representation for the lower class in America is an actual issue. The Democrats explicitly moved away from supporting the working class decades ago - not accidentally, in fucking written form and open discussion. Yet Diane still considers herself a champion of human rights because she resents "dudebros" and an opposes fracking.
It's the empty-calorie politics that is Hollywood's bread and butter. Those easy, human's right issues that everyone can get behind. "Don't choke your wife to death", as the show joking put it. You'd have to be a lunatic not to agree.
But going back to "Better Call Saul", ask yourself why it's easier to hate Chuck than it is to hate Jimmy towards the end of their feud. It's because throughout the fighting, every time Chuck tears Jimmy down, Chuck tells Jimmy it's for Jimmy's benefit. He's helping Jimmy. He's making the world a better place by hurting Jimmy. Chuck tries to make himself the hero.
Meanwhile, Jimmy does his awful things and feels bad. He hurts people, and then tries to make it right. He screws his brother, then admits it to Chuck to help Chuck feel better. Every time Jimmy hurts someone, he regrets it and wants to make it right. He keeps on hurting people, but that's the tragedy of the character.
Same deal with Diane and Bojack. Bojack just keeps hurting people and himself, and that's his tragedy, but every time Bojack feels bad and wants to make amends. He wants to fix it. He wants to be a better person.
Diane, meanwhile, moralizes everything she does. She wrote that hit piece on Bojack because it was the "real" story. She writes her feminist articles because it's the "right thing" to write about. The biggest blow to her ego in the entire show is when she goes to a war zone and realizes she's not sincere enough to be among those people.
